Little Miss PaperCuts has her first big school production coming up. Of course, I had to be on the committee. Can you guess what I am doing.....PROPS!! How exciting right. I shall have to post some sneak peaks of the progress. They are coming along nicely.

One of the things her school likes to do is set up a display at the school entrance to hype up the production. I was in charge of the design so I had to go big.  The theme of the play is 'Once Upon A Time: With A Twist'. They took several fairytales and mixed them up.  So I had to really think of how to integrate this into a single design. I created a huge 30" cottage to replica Hansel & Gretal and put other fairytales in the windows and around the outside of the house.  How many fairytales do you see?

It's A Jungle Out There! Part 1

Everyone once in a while I have a client that not only wants a custom design but for me to come and set it up. How lovely is it come to you child's party and everything is done. Balloons- check! Favors-check! Streamers-check! This awesome party was just that.

I met with Xoie's gorgeous mom, a month before and she gave me her vision. Off and running I went to bring the jungle to her basements. Here are some sneak peeks of the custom designs.

Ollie The Owl

Chicago Play Pen loved my digital design so much they gave me a daunting task. Make their logo into a giant cutout for their store, complete with a writable chalkboard. What do you think, did I nail it?

Meet Mr Fruit Turkey

Yes, I am that mom. The one who takes a simple request to bring a dish to their kids kindergarten lunch party and makes it complicated.  But Mr Fruit Turkey was a HIT!! The kids ate the entire thing, including his head, lol.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

School Days

I love a challenge, especially a 4' x 7' challenge that needed to be able to fold into a car. A dance instructor contacted me hoping I could make a stage prop for her students upcoming dance recital. We settled on creating a over-sized yellow school bus but since they didn't have a truck we needed to make it portable.  It was a pickle for a moment but cleverness prevailed and it came out great!
